Fantasy Analysis
Week 6 Projections
With Leonard Fournette (ankle) sidelined during the last two weeks, Jones, operating in a workhorse role, cranked out two straight scoreless 100-yard performances. Since Fournette is expected to return this week, he and Jones will go back to operating in a hot-hand timeshare. Jones is the preferred runner of the two, but that doesn't guarantee a big workload for him every week. The Green Bay Packers have allowed the ninth-fewest rushing yards to enemy tailbacks, but they've also coughed up the 10th-most catches and the sixth-most receiving yards to the position. The Packers' weakness against running backs in the passing game is why they've hemorrhaged the second-most fantasy points to the position. Jones looks like a solid fantasy RB3 play.
Rushing: 69 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 3 Receptions, 19 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Ronald Jones made major strides in 2019, but one major component of that was just how bad he was in 2018. When the starting point is that low, a giant step is necessary to maintain relevance. Credit to him, he did that, but he was never able to grasp the starting role away completely from the now defected Peyton Barber. Will his role increase with newcomer Ke'Shawn Vaughn taking a reduced role? We don't think it wise to expect it, but it is in the range of potential outcomes.

Rushing: 739 Yards, 4 TD.
Receiving: 29 Receptions, 208 Yards, 0 TD.
